The Reticule writes: "It's another of those licenses that takes a developer with balls to accept. But it's not as if Telltale doesn't have the pedigree. With former LucasArts adventure Sam & Max under their belt and a proven track record with the Strong Bad and Wallace & Gromit games, it was only a matter of time before LucasArts themselves entrusted one of their other prize jewels with the studio made up of former comrades – and so we see the first episode of Telltale's latest offering: Tales of Monkey Island. Does it have the right to hold the Monkey Island flag high? If this first episode is anything to go by, it looks promising."
